Overwatch PTR Patch Notes - October 23, 2018
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker)
A new Overwatch patch is currently in development and now available for testing. To share your feedback or report and issue, please post in the PTR Feedback or PTR Bug Report forums.

Please note that the below patch notes only include changes currently available for testing on the PTR. While many of these changes will also be available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in a future patch, the PTR is PC-only and therefore will only reflect changes coming specifically to that platform.

General Updates
  • Audio
    • An option to use Windows Spatial Audio is now available. This feature can be found in the Windows Start Menu under Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Sound > Speaker Device > Spatial Sound
    • Developer Comments: Since launch, we’ve supported Dolby Atmos for players who use headphones, and we’re now expanding this support to include the Windows 10 implementation for spatial audio. Spatial audio is configured in the Windows 10 sound settings and will take priority over the settings in the game client. This will allow for more options, including settings for Windows Sonic Headphones, Dolby Atmos for Headphones, and Dolby Atmos for Home Theater.

Hero Updates
  • General
    • Made jump height consistent across hero roster
  • Mercy
    • Valkyrie
      • Ultimate cost reduced 15%
      • Healing per second increased from 50 to 60
      • Developer Comments: Mercy’s ultimate was charging a bit too slowly after her base healing was reduced in a previous update. These changes should restore some of her ultimate’s strength and let it build up more quickly.
  • Reaper
    • Hellfire Shotguns
      • Spread randomization reduced by 50%
    • The Reaping
      • Life steal increased from 20% to 30% of damage dealt
      • Developer Comments: Reaper’s specialty is fighting at a very close range. The more consistent spread pattern and increase in healing from his passive ability will make him more capable of standing toe-to-toe with his enemies.
  • Roadhog
    • Chain Hook
      • Decreased the delay before pulling a hooked target from 0.5 seconds to 0.3 seconds
      • Now greatly reduces the target’s momentum upon being hooked
      • Cooldown now begins immediately, instead of after the target has been pulled
    • Scrap Gun
      • Spread pattern adjusted for both primary and secondary fire
      • Spread randomization reduced by 50%
    • Whole Hog
      • Knockback maximum velocity increased by 25% (from 8 to 10 meters per second)
      • Horizontal recoil decreased slightly
      • Developer Comments: Roadhog is receiving several large changes to make his abilities more consistent. His Chain Hook had issues with breaking when enemy targets jumped or fell behind environment collision. It will now slow them down in the air more when the hook lands, and wait less time before it starts reeling them in. Since Chain Hook’s cooldown now begins immediately upon use, so it no longer varies based on Roadhog’s distance to the hook target. We’ve also moved some of the projectiles closer to the center of the spread pattern on his Scrap Gun, which gives him a more consistent damage output for its primary and alternate fire. Previously, there was a long-standing bug that caused close-range targets to fly much further than expected. After this bug was fixed, we still wanted to keep some of the knockback burst it provided, so we’ve increased the overall velocity cap to maintain some of that functionality.
  • Symmetra
    • Photon Projector
      • Primary fire beam charges up 20% faster
      • Developer Comments: It’s still difficult to use Symmetra’s Photon Projector beam effectively, even after its range was increased. By speeding up the primary fire charge rate, it takes less time to ramp up to its full damage potential and will be a stronger option when she’s presented with targets to charge up on.

  • Roadhog
    • Fixed a bug that prevented Chain Hook from going on cooldown if it was interrupted before the chain retracted
    • Fixed a bug that prevented Chain Hook from destroying breakable objects when pulling the target backward
    • Fixed a bug that caused Roadhog’s Whole Hog visual effects to cover a wider area than the spread of projectiles
  • Torbjörn
    • Fixed a bug that prevented Santaclad Torbjörn’s ultimate voice lines from playing when activating Molten Core
